parallel here for a previous two-term president. check this out. this is ronald reagan's first-term portrait and this is ronald reagan's second-term portrait. put those up, side by side. that is how president reagan went from portrait one to portrait two. start of term one to start of term two. now look at president obama. see similarities there? it's not like every president does this. just reagan and now obama. i think people make too much of the political parallels between obama and reagan, but aesthetically, you kind of can't make too much of this one. in this case in the evolution of the official portrait, i think you can make as much of this parallel that you want to because that's kind of an uncanny thing, isn't it? the newport rat is out. the new term is about to start. we here at msnbc and everybody in the news business is gearing up for inaugural weekend coverage. this will be my second time covering an inauguration. we'll have the whole schedule for you of when everything happens and when it's going to be on tv. that's coming up a little later on in the show tonight.
